overkill? Apr 16

Some people think my 70-200 lens is big… I submit to you that it is not:

wedding photography, not with this lens


Sigma’s 200-500mm f2.8, which retails for a cool $24,000, chump change compared to Canon’s equally ridiculous $100,000 1200mm.

I can’t even imagine a scenario that would be useful for wedding photography. In fact I have a hard time thinking of anything to use it for… on safari with a beefy tripod bolted to the truck maybe?

    Hahahaha…..when your lens has a *handle*, that’s when you know you are big time! The best part is the dude’s muscle’s straining to hold the lens up!

    this is hilarious! I’ve heard of this lens but never seen a picture of it, much less…somebody trying to ‘handhold’ it.
    totally agree with your thoughts about overkill, and sparce application.
